2nd OFFENSE. FAILED FIELD SOBRIETY TESTS.
"Joe is quick, smart, and fast. The way he speaks just blows you away.
He made all the right decisions and got 2 very incriminating statements I
made thrown out at a pretrial motion. That enabled us to get a not
guilty verdict despite the cop's testimony that I failed all the field
sobriety tests. Good thing, too, my wife was 4 months pregnant and I
kept my job. I highly recommend him."
Mr. C; 508-523-8185
3 TIMES LIMIT FAILED BREATH TEST THROWN OUT
NOT GUILTY 2ND OFFENSE
"I don’t know how Joe did it but at a motion to suppress evidence, he got my .22 breath test thrown out of court. That gave us a fighting chance at trial. During his cross exam, he made the cop admit to a long laundry list of everything I had done right, instead of what I did wrong."
'AFTER JOE'S CLOSING ARGUMENT,
EVEN I WOULD HAVE VOTED NOT GUILTY."
Mr. W.; 508.282.6514
FAILED BREATH TEST AND FIELD TESTS:
NOT GUILTY AT TRIAL OUI 1ST OFFENSE
Client failed the one leg stand and walk and turn test badly, was arrested and failed the breath test at the station and lost his license. I argued he pulled over properly, was able to produce his license and registration, exit the car and walk to testing area with no issues in perfectly normal manner. Also that the breath test was done one hour and six minutes after the stop and showed his alcohol level was still rising and thus arguably below the legal limit at the time of driving as required by law to be guilty.
Judge agreed and acquitted him.
3RD OFFENSE, .13 BREATH TEST THROWN OUT, DROVE WRONG WAY JURY: NOT GUILTY IN 5 MINUTES
My case looked like a sure loser but Joe studied the booking video and said we should try to get the breath test excluded. At his motion to suppress, he showed a half dozen ways it was done incorrectly and the judge threw it out. That gave us a fighting chance. At trial, a police lieutenant testified to my car going the wrong way completely over the center line and the arresting officer swore I failed all the field sobriety tests. Joe was ready to cross-examine them all.He is one of the most intelligent people I have ever met. I owe him my license, my job, and my life.
'AFTER WATCHING JOE DEFEND ME,
MY DAUGHTER DECIDED TO GO TO LAW SCHOOL'
BLEW A .19 & FAILED BREATH TEST,
NOT GUILTY, 2ND OFFENSE
Client waved to a passing cop with his keys in his hand and told him he was having trouble starting his car. They stopped, noticed slurred speech, and he failed all the field tests. At the station, the breath test registered .19, almost two and one half times over limit! At trial, although 2 cops testified, I argued neither could attest that he had placed the keys in the ignition or when he had done so. Plus, I was able to prove the battery was dead and thus he had the additional defense of "factual impossibility." Not guilty 2nd offense.
WESTBORO; ROAD BLOCK
FAILED BREATH TESTS AND FIELD SOBRIETY TESTS: NOT GUILTY
I was stopped at a road block and admitted to the Trooper I had been drinking 45 minutes ago. He took me out of the car and I foolishly agreed to do the field sobriety tests. I failed them all and was arrested. Then I –also foolishly—agreed to take the breathalyzer in the trailer nearby. I registered over limit on both of them too. Plus, at Trial, the Trooper testified my eyes couldn’t focus on him and I was unsteady on my feet. No matter. Joe’s obvious skills as a Mass. DUI Lawyer during cross-examination won the day.
'PUT YOURSELF IN HIS HANDS-- HE'S A GOD'
"HE SAVED MY LIFE. I WAS DEAD GUILTY."
"He's quick, smart, and fast. The way he speaks just blows you away.; He made all the right decisions: got 2 incriminating statements thrown out at a Motions Hearing.; I'm driving again and kept my job after the not guilty verdict despite the cop's testimony that I failed all the field sobriety tests on my 2nd offense. Good thing, too, my wife was 4 months pregnant. I highly recommend him."
"WE WALKED INTO COURT AND HE KNEW EVERYBODY -- AND I MEAN EVERYBODY!"
NOT GUILTY 2ND OFFENSE: FAILED ALL FIELD TESTS, 21 CANS OF BEER IN TRUCK
It was my 2nd offense. I failed both the field sobriety tests and had 21 cans of beer in the truck, plus one open container of beer in the console! Joe did a painstaking cross examination of the cop, bringing it along slowly and stressing everything I had done right. We got a Not Guilty and the judge ordered my 3 year refusal suspension overturned the same day.
"AT TRIAL, HE IMPRESSED EVERYBODY. PEOPLE IN THE AUDIENCE ASKED FOR HIS CARD"

WESTBORO -ROAD BLOCK
2ND OFFENSE THROWN OUT OF COURT: .17 BREATH TEST EXCLUDED ROADBLOCK UNCONSTITUTIONALLY EXECUTED
Call me and I'll tell you the truth: Joe is, quite simply, an awesome Massachusetts OUI Attorney. He always let me know what was going on with my case and was always on time to Court. After reviewing all the road block documents and the police reports, he told me he had a good chance to get my case thrown completely out of Court. At his Motion to Suppress Evidence, that’s exactly what happened.
The DA jumped up and down but the Judge agreed with Joe!
"HE DID 6 TIMES WHAT MY LAST LAWYER DID!'
Started work on my 2nd offense immediately after the first phone call
wrote long reports explaining everything
visited the arrest scene with me on a Sunday morning
made a video of the route I drove and got stopped on
prepared me at great length to testify
provided immediate answers to all my questions
'YOU'D BE CRAZY NOT TO HIRE HIM'

"JOE IS EXTREMELY IMPRESSIVE IN COURT"
Cop testified he saw me drive up onto a curb and cross marked lanes, was unsteady on my feet, swayed while walking, had a strong odor of alcohol, slurred speech and failed the one leg stand field sobriety test. At my Arraignment, Joe had a Motion allowed to preserve the videos of me at roadside and at booking which ended up refuting what the cop said. Then after getting a Not Guilty, he went the extra mile and interceded on my behalf with the RMV when they refused to reinstate my license despite the Court Order he had obtained immediately after Trial to force them to do so.
I strongly recommend him to anybody. Call me!
FAILED BREATH TEST, 2 LANES VIOLATIONS
2 OPEN CONTAINERS
NOT GUILTY AT TRIAL
Client was seen to drift from one side of the road to the other then back again, He failed the walk and turn test and 2 open beer bottles were found in his door, still cold to the touch. He then failed the breath test at the station as well. At trial, judge allowed my motion to exlcude any testimony about the beer cans and then acquitted him after trial.
OK to call client to verify: James 508.688.9122
OUI 2ND DISMISSED; 3 YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION OVERTURNED
When the cop didn't show on the Motions date, I argued to the Judge that the Officer had an obligation to the Court itself and didn't fulfill it. The Judge agreed and dismissed the charges.
After that, I handed the Judge an Order to sign restoring my client's license despite the 3 year loss from the RMV for refusing the Breath test. He signed that too and my client's license was restored the same day.
Result: no 5 year license loss and full privilege license immediately restored
91 MPH AND .16 FAILED BREATH TEST: 4 OF 5 CHARGES DROPPED
Clocked by radar speeding and tailgating at 91 mph. my client blew an over limit .16 and an .18. With 5 infractions already on his license, if responsible on all 5 of the new charges, he would have triggered an additional 60 day suspension for which no work license is available and lost his job. I negotiated a plea deal where 4 charges were dropped outright. Result, the additional 60 day suspension was not triggered; he got a work license and kept his job.
THREE YEAR REFUSAL SUSPENSION OVERTURNED
My client tried to take the breath test some 6-8 times. He completed the first test but couldn't produce enough air to complete the second one as is required. The police nonetheless charged him with a refusal and he suffered a 3 year license loss. I reviewed the police paperwork and found it inadequate. We went to a Hearing at the Boston RMV but lost. We then appealed to a Judge. He agreed with me and reversed the RMV's decision.
Client got his license back while the case was still pending in Court.
2ND OFFENDER FAILS FIELD TESTS, ADMITS TO 6 BEERS- NOT GUILTY AT TRIAL
On the 9 Step Walk & Turn test, Client took 20 steps out and 22 steps back (instead of 9 each way). Plus, he admitted first to 2 then later to 6 beers. At my Motion to suppress evidence, the Judge threw out his admission to 6 beers as in violation of his Miranda Rights. Then at trial, I showed the booking video and stressed everything my client had done right instead of wrong.
Result: Not Guilty – no jail or 5 year license loss
.32 FAILED BREATH TEST & 2ND OFFENSE: 3 OF 4 CHARGES DROPPED & NO JAIL
Despite having an over limit breath test of .32 (4 times the legal limit!) less than two years after her previous arrest for OUI, I negotiated a deal where not even a suspended jail sentence was imposed and 3 of the 4 charges against her were dropped on the very first Court date.
FAILED BREATH TESTS AND 3 FIELD TESTS:
NOT GUILTY- SECOND OFFENSE
Cop testified my client smelled of alcohol, had slurred speech, failed the backwards counting, the 9 step walk and turn and the one leg stand field sobriety tests. At the station, my client was over limit and failed the breath tests as well. I stressed to the Court all the things my client had done right [no problems driving, producing license and registration, followed cop's instructions, etc.] and that the breath test was done over one hour after he was arrested and thus should be discounted.
The Judge agreed. Not Guilty.
.131 PBT + ADMITS TO 5 BEERS, NOT GUILTY
The cop followed my client and testified he committed "several lanes violations" and noted a "moderate" odor of alcohol on his breath. Then the client admitted to 5 beers in a short period of time, got out of the car and made several errors on the field sobriety tests.
Result: Not Guilty after Trial and license restored.
Thank you for representing me in court this week. Your professionalism and preparedness was something I was extremely impressed with. All the documents you prepared for me not only eased my concerns along the way but gave me an organized approach heading into court. If I ever have friends or family in a similar situation, I would definitely recommend you as their defense attorney. Thanks again.
‘HE WAS FAR MORE INTELLIGENT THAN ALL THE OTHER ATTORNEYS I SPOKE TO’
I was clocked speeding 100 mph in a 40 mph zone and searched the Internet for lawyers. In addition to his fine website, Joe called me right back and gave me more valuable information – much more of it – than all the other attorneys I spoke with combined. Hiring him was a no-brainer.
He cleared me of doing 100 in a 40 mph zone which saved me over $600 in fines!
YOU WERE ALWAYS AVAILABLE TO SPEAK WITH
"I am ecstatic at the outcome you negotiated on the 7 charges I faced. I had resigned myself to a series of outcomes - none of them as good as what you've produced. You were always available to speak with and you answered all my questions (sometimes repeatedly). Very professional."
"HIRE THIS GUY!
HE DOESN'T MAKE PROMISES HE CAN'T KEEP"
I was charged with my 2nd offense and failed both the field tests and registered over limit on the breath tests. I called Joe and he had a very comforting manner and was calm and courteous on the phone so I hired him immediately. Somehow, he got me a not guilty after Trial. Keep his card in your wallet!
